Live what you love

3 killer ideas to increase your clients’ activity

When you already have some clients who are benefiting from your services or products within the spiritual industry, it’s time to ask yourself: how to make an even bigger positive impact? Maybe you’ve helped them feel more realigned, more energised or guided them to unleash their true calling or coached them with their personal development. But how often do they come back to you?

Having returning clients is the ultimate seal of approval that you’re doing something well. Even if you served your customers in a way that they don’t need a follow up, they become your walking advertisement. There are multiple options to maximise the opportunities to not only generate more revenue per customer, but to increase your brand visibility as well. Happy clients equal to a healthy business. I’m sharing 3 killer ideas on how you can increase your clients’ activity to bring you:

✔️ more revenue

✔️ more new customers

✔️ more fulfillment

✔️ much more impact in the word.

ASK FOR REFERRALS

Asking for referrals is the simplest yet the most overlooked technique. I’m starting with this one as this is the most powerful tool you can use; forget digital marketing for a second and trust me: word of mouth is still the most effective way to get you leads who are the easiest to convert into paying customers. If you are making a living out of what you’re passionate about then you would be delivering an excellent service to your clients (that doesn’t feel like work), which means that they are having an amazing customer experience and likely to be talking about you already within their network. How can you ask your customers to send you more business without sounding too ‘salesy’? I’m a big believer in the power of personal touch! Reach out to them a few weeks after they purchased your service or product and make your follow up as personal as you can. If you built a rapport with them, use the little details to ask how they’re doing since you last spoke.

For example: “Hey Tom, how are you getting on with the guided meditation I showed you to help you become more focused? What was your biggest success when using the technique?”

Either you are following up with them by phone, email, Whatsapp, Social Media or in person make sure you end your conversation by telling them how grateful you’d be if they shared your details in case they know anyone who could benefit from your service / product. If you are in a position to offer them a freebie in return for the referral, it’s even better. Another great way to maximise referrals is to promote it while they are purchasing /using your service or product. Offering an incentive or discount for them if they bring you more clients will strengthen your market position in a powerful way.

Competition time

It doesn’t matter what your spiritual / esoteric business offers as a service or a product, your clients will love a competition when they can bag something for free. Who doesn’t like the thrill of winning? If you launch your competition with a strategic angle, you’ll not only get your existing customers become more engaged and loyal to you but will have the opportunity to reach new clients as well. I personally always recommend launching a competition that:

✔️ creates value for your existing customers

✔️ has a limited timeframe for the offer

✔️ will give the opportunity to showcase your winner (blog post, interview, podcast, social media feature)

✔️ opens up doors for collaborations

Try to keep track of your competitions and promotions so you’ll have a good idea what works best within your audience. Some of my clients see amazing results when offering flash sales within their competition campaigns and some get better results when there is a physical item to be won.

Customer testimonials

This one probably goes without saying how important it is to have written feedback from your customers. Obviously it’s a great way to boost your credibility and showcase how your spiritual business stands out from your competition, however, it’s also a great tool to get your clients become more active. Remember what I said about referrals?

There are many ways you can feature customer reviews but keep in mind the real reason why you actually want them. Are you a new business and you need to show that you’re the real deal? Are you trying to position yourself in a specific niche in your market? Are you trying to get better visibility within your clients’ network? Having a more structured and strategic approach with your customer reviews will be a huge pay-off in the long-term.

Figure out where you need the biggest boost and direct your clients with their reviews with that goal in mind. If it’s your social media presence that you want to focus on, then ask them to leave reviews on Facebook or get their permission to post their feedback on your Instagram stories. In case you’re a TikTok-er then produce a video of you sharing the lovely reviews. So many options, the key is to remain strategic!


These 3 tips should be starting points when you’re trying to grow and scale-up your spiritual business with authenticity in focus. Getting your customers more engaged, will lead you to an expanded audience, more loyal clients and stronger brand positioning.

3 things to do before you start your spiritual business

You finally took a leap and realised that you can pursue your true passion as a way to make a living. You are tired of just having a job to pay the bills and you are finally listening to that inner voice inside you that’s driving you to follow your spiritual path as a career. I’m excited to share some of my knowledge I gained throughout my career as I was constantly going back and forth between wanting to be successful in business and following my inner calling to develop myself spiritually. It eventually hit me one day: I don’t need to choose between my 2 passions, I can combine them! And just like that, Connect One Marketing was born.

I’m on a mission to help spiritual healers, energy workers and esoteric service providers reach their customers to be able to fully dedicate their lives to their inner calling. No more feeling stuck, frustrated or wasting your talents. Get ready to level up and live the life that truly aligns with you.

Either you have already started working on your spiritual business on the side or you are just about to launch it, check how many of these 3 questions you know the answers to already:

  1. DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT YOUR MARKET NEEDS?

    It’s a great first step when you realise what skills and talents you have either as a yoga instructor, a Reiki healer, an herbalist, a crystal healer, a numerologist or a holistic therapist; however you need to know what is the real demand for your skills. First things first: are you going to provide your service online/remotely or in person? Depending on your industry, your clients want different things. Put yourself into your customers’ shoes before you make any decisions. Then do your market research to make sure you are actually supplying an existing demand and in a much better way than your competition. When I was delivering a marketing training my favourite allegory to explain this process was this: if you have a darts board in front of you, you know where to aim your darts. If you are blind folded in a room and someone hands you some darts and says ‘here you go’ you are very unlikely to hit the bull’s eye.

  2. WHAT PROBLEM DO YOU SOLVE?

    Doesn’t matter what kind of business we look at, they can only be successful if they are offering a solution to a pain point. There’s absolutely no difference within the spiritual world. People are seeking answers, guidance, solutions either to learn how to manage their kundalini awakening process, how to release karmic blockages or how to astral travel. Write down in one sentence what it is that you provide as a solution. For example, if you’re a Law of Attraction coach then explain what benefits your clients will get from your sessions or if you are an astrology forecast expert then make it clear how your customers can use your report to navigate the timing in their lives.

  3. HOW ARE YOU DIFFERENT?

    This is the part that you should spend a bit of intuitive time on. You probably already have a feeling that you are a little bit different than the majority of people. Now it’s time to translate that into the business world: what makes you YOU on a soul level? How is your service different than the one your competitor’s offer? Branding is crucial to make your spiritual business stand out and attract the customers that you need. In my example, I became a CEO at the age of 30 and then resigned to live in a jungle in Sri Lanka to realign my mind and connect to source, to myself, to the universe, to all of us as one. Connect One.
